20-year-old central defender Jenson Seelt is on his way to Wearside after a deal was agreed between Sunderland and PSV Eindhoven. The 6ft 4in centreback will travel to the Stadium of Light this week to undergo a medical and finalise his move. The deal is subject to international clearance.
Seelt did not appear for PSV’s senior team although he did make the squad on nine occasions. He did, however, feature 33 times for their U21s last season in the Dutch second division. The fee and length of the contract are yet to be announced.
Seelt becomes Sunderland’s fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of midfielder Jobe Bellingham from Birmingham City, striker Luis ‘Hemir’ Semedo from Portuguese club Benfica, and defender Nectarios Triantis from Australian side Central Coast Mariners.
Amad Diallo Latest
According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are set to make a decision on Amad Diallo’s future in the coming weeks. Should they decide to send the forward out on loan again, it is believed that the player would prefer to return to Sunderland.
Diallo enjoyed a successful season on Wearside during the 2022/23 campaign becoming a fan favourite in the process. The Black Cats reached the playoffs in their first season back in the Championship following promotion from League One.
The 20-year-old Ivory Coast international who can play in a number of forward positions scored 14 goals last season including a stunning equaliser in the play-off semi-final first leg.
